Our churches cost around £100,000 in total to run each year; or around £2,000 every week. Roughly:
- 35% goes on the cost of running and maintaining the buildings
- 15% goes on the cost of services, outreach and supporting our partner organisations
- 45% is given to the diocese towards the cost of having a vicar
- 5% goes on other expenses
We cover a third of the costs of running the church through hiring out the halls, but the bulk of our income comes through contributions from our members.
